Mathematics Education in Singapore--An Insider's Perspective
Kaur, Berinderjeet
Indonesian Mathematical Society Journal on Mathematics Education, v5 n1 p1-16 Jan 2014
Singapore's Education System has evolved over time and so has Mathematics Education in Singapore. The present day School Mathematics Curricula can best be described as one that caters for the needs of every child in school. It is based on a framework that has mathematical problem solving as its primary focus. The developments from 1946 to 2012 that have shaped the present School Mathematics Curricula in Singapore are direct consequences of developments in the Education System of Singapore during the same period. The curriculum, teachers, learners and the learning environment may be said to contribute towards Singapore's performance in international benchmark studies such as TIMSS and PISA.
